Kimberly Wyatt and Ashley Roberts won't be purring any more, as they have left the Pussycat Dolls.
Kimberly - a judge on Sky1's Got To Dance - told Loaded: "I've left the group - I am so thankful for everything the Pussycat Dolls has brought into my life, but I have to say there were just too many variables that I couldn't agree with and I had to follow my heart."
Ashley made the announcement on her website, saying: "Yes, I have left the Pussycat Dolls - it was an amazing ride, and I learned so much!"
The news means frontwoman Nicole Scherzinger and Melody Thornton are the only remaining members.
Kimberly refused to go into the reasons behind her decision, saying: "Money and fame can't buy happiness. I think that once I started to get to know myself more and more, I was like, 'You know, I don't think that my happiness is within this group right now'."
She added: "I love being a Doll, but as far as the variables off-stage are concerned - I just couldn't do it any more."
